I don't understand what I am doing wrong?
The formatting of the ternary if is correct, there are no compiler errors either.
int value = -1; string textColor = null; (value < 0) ? textColor = "red" : textColor = "green";

The ternary operator should be used as an expression, not as a control statement. Try coding it as a single assignment, with the entire ternary on the right side, and the true/false clauses holding only the values to be chosen. Example:
string YesNo = boolValue ? "Yes" : "No";

I also got caught out by this!
I originally had value < 0 ? textColor = "red" : "green";
but it turned out I needed to swap the condition and the variable name like this: textColor = value < 0 ? "red" : "green";
